Events include hands-on science exhibitions, demonstrations, performances, tours, workshops and more.
Sessions include Food for Thought: Domestic Science where participants learn how to harness the power of fruits and vegetables for an epic “food fight,” Iron-Man’s Cereal, Reinforced Rice, Make your Own Bioplastic, Separate DNA and plenty more. The Beaver Dam RoboHackerz Robotics Team will teach RoboSumo, where teams work together to build a robot to compete in a battle with another robot. Other sessions feature Make Your Own Robot! where youth participants make and take home a robot, and Take the LEGO Challenge where kids can get creative at different LEGO building stations. They will have challenges to complete and lots of ideas to take home.
